GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Suha Hamad, 25, sacrificed herself to save the lives of her four children.

All the children survived but one, a toddler, who is now in the ICU.

Suha took her last breath saving their lives. When the power went out at 11 p.m. Tuesday night, Suha took three of her children to sleep in their grandmother's room. She thought it was the safest place in the house and went back to get her four-month-old baby.

It was at this moment that she was hit by shrapnel from an Israeli missile.

Mahdi Hamad, Suha's father, said that "nobody called us to evacuate the house and there aren't any resistance members around it."

"Glass was shattered behind the children and men fell into a big pool of blood."

Her eyes full of pain and sorrow, Suha's mother said: "Who do they have to live for when they lost both their mother and father?"

She added: "What crime have these children committed to be punished like that?"






Israeli warplanes bombed the home midnight Tuesday, killing a senior Islamic Jihad militant and five members of his family.

A Gaza health ministry spokesman identified them as Hafiz Mohammed Hamad, 30, Ibrahim Mohammed, 26, Mahdi Mohammed Hamad, 46, Fawzia Khalil Hamad, 62, Mehdi Hamad, 16, and Suha Hamad 25.

Israel's military did not immediately respond to calls seeking comment.

You are despicable Israel! Barbarous,savage,bigotted & backward!
I hope global Jews are proud of Zionist Israel? Because Israel professes to be all Jews voice.As if apartheid Israel is the CORE mindset of you all!Which is a FALSEHOOD! We know! Question is,when are more global Jews going to be COURAGEOUS enough to STAND UP PUBLICALLY & denounce these Zionist savages who hide BENEATH the umbrella of Judaism,& Christianity? Global Jews should OWN Israel proudly,or DENOUNCE it for what it is!!

What kind of comment do we expect from Israel? "We're terribly sorry your elected government fired rockets at us forcing us to bomb you in response." Israel owes nobody any kind of comment. Hamas fires rockets into Israel trying to kill innocent people. Israel returns the favor. I'm very sorry for every innocent person who is injured or killed. It is a tragedy. But it is a tragedy that could have been prevented if Hamas was not controlled by jihadist psychopaths and supported by Gazans.

As tragic as this is, Gaza elected Hamas knowing fully well that Hamas is seething with anti-Semitism and is bent on destroying the Jewish state. Then Hamas launches rockets and hides among women and children. What do you expect Israel to do? What would you do? And don't tell me because of the occupation, Israel left Gaza in 2005.

@SAM, CANADA. HE WAS NOT A TERRORIST. HE WAS A RESISTANCE MEMBER. PALESTINIANS HAVE THE RIGHT TO RESIST ISRAEL UNDER THE GENEVA CONVENTION AND UNDER INTERNATIONAL LAW. YES EVEN IF ISRAEL IS JEWISH....EVEN JEWS CAN BE RESISTED. To bad we cannot all stay away from you and your people.....you are the problem wherever you are.

Hey, I've got an idea. Why doesn't Hamas stop wasting tens of millions of dollars, smuggling missiles into Gaza, just so they can launch them indiscriminately on innocent people? Why don't they spend those millions helping the Palestinian people - you know, things like building schools and infrastructure. Then Israel would not be forced to attack them, and small children would not be killed. I mean, that's what a normal, sane people would do. Oh wait, I forgot....
